The Calfornia Community College Athletic Association honors academic excellence for both individuals and teams. Last week at the CCCAA Spring convention in Concord California MiraCosta alum Breanna Kirklen and the 2016 women's beach volleyball team both received recognition for academic excellence.
Kirklen completed her academic studies at MiraCosta College with a 3.906 GPA in a major of Psychology. She earned her way on to the President's list each semester between Fall 2014 and Spring 2016 and was named to the 2016 All-State All-Academic team. Kirklen was also named the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year, an honor that MiraCosta has earned three out of the last four years.
In addition to Kirklen's award the 2016 women's beach volleyball team was named Scholar-Team of the Year for their cumulative academic achievement.
